THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
IF YOU WANT TO SEE GOD’S BEST, STOP LIVING IN REGRET
Too many people live feeling CONDEMNED because of past MISTAKES. They’ve asked God to forgive them every DAY for the last four YEARS. They don’t REALIZE the first time they ASKED Him, He FORGAVE them. HE’S saying, “I’ve already blotted it out through Jesus’ BLOOD.” If GOD let it go, why don’t YOU let it go? Why don’t you forgive YOURSELF? RECEIVE His mercy and move FORWARD with your life. As long as you’re living in REGRET, beating YOURSELF up for PAST mistakes, you’ll NEVER move into the NEW things God has in STORE.
After the INCREDIBLE price that Christ paid on the CROSS, it doesn’t bring Him any HONOR for us to go around feeling unworthy, condemned. I can imagine God saying to the angels, “I gave My BEST, sent My only SON, paid the ULTIMATE price. What more could I DO?” Let’s do OUR part and BELIEVE that we’re FORGIVEN, REDEEMED, that we have an everlasting RELEASE from our sins.
2 Corinthians 5:19, TLB
For God was in Christ, restoring the world to himself, no longer counting men’s sins against them but blotting them out. This is the wonderful message he has given us to tell others.
